Village at Totem Lake
Contractor: Applied Restoration
Architect: IBI Group
Team: Amerimix, ClarkDietrich/Vinyl Corp., Evergreen Building Products, Parex USA, Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel
The Village at Totem Lake is a new retail and residential complex in Kirkland. Building B is the centerpiece and largest retail building in the complex.
For cost savings, the contractor, Applied Restoration, presented the owners with the option of Parex USAâ€™s masonry veneer system (MVS-CI). This continuous insulation finish system (CIFS) assembly has the ability to transition from brick to traditional plaster finish seamlessly.
The owner and the general contractor were on board because of cost savings, energy efficiency, time savings, a great warranty and achievement of the desired look.
Applied Restoration used its own team of brick masons to install the foam core custom stone but also brought in a team of plasterers, brick masons and carpenters to complete the project on time.
The ultimate result was an energy-efficient, functional, durable and high-quality building envelope with the multifaceted brick-and-plaster look the owners desired. The $3 million, 48,000-square-foot exterior skin will be the centerpiece of this new shopping destination for decades to come.
Judge’s comment: “The success of achieving four completely differentiated finishes from a single exterior system proves the quality of the contract work and versatility of the product.”
